Use the Access My Registration function and select "Book/Modify My Hotel” in the bottom right corner. You will need the guest’s last name and Passkey Acknowledgment Number to log in; this information can be found in your hotel acknowledgment e-mail. An automatic response will be sent to the e-mail address on file. Please keep this e-mail for your records. After April 23, 2022, contact your hotel directly for changes or cancellations. Any changes to an existing hotel reservation are subject to availability. All hotel cancellations made within three business days of arrival will result in a cancellation fee of one night's room and tax charged to the credit card on file. Failure to check in to the hotel on the scheduled arrival date will result in forfeiture of the one night's room and tax deposit and the remaining nights of the reservation will be cancelled. SAP will not be responsible for cancellation or no-show charges. For additional assistance, contact housing for SAP Sapphire & ASUG Accelerate Orlando at sapsapphire@conferencedirect.com.
